Last night the powers that be honored Jeff Jensen and me with an Eisner award for Best Reality-Based Work on Green River Killer. Quite an honor. I’m especially happy for Jeff and his family— their story is heroic in a way you rarely find in comics.
To commemorate the occasion, here’s some (typically creepy) artwork I did for a part of the GRK promotional machine that just never saw the light of day.
Annnnnnnnd…. I’m sure Jeff did a great job of this already, but since I wasn’t at San Diego or the Eisners this time, I’ll make my acknowledgements here:
Thanks to our editor, Sierra Hahn, for bringing this project my way and for being tenacious. Terrific job, Sierra!
Jeff Jensen, for telling his father’s story with grace, and for entrusting me with the drawing.
Brendan Wright, our assistant editor, for never missing a beat.
The rest of the Dark Horse crew, especially the ones that cleaned up those speckled page scans.
The Jensen family, for their story, their warmth, and the delicious cookies from Mrs. Jensen.
My crew at Periscope Studio, for helping me through everything and keeping me from taking myself too seriously.
My family, for their support and encouragement.
